Notes from a blind tasting.
A very typical Glen Grant, I think. Sparkling clean, fruity, fits.
Yellow, ripe fruits and old bottle flavor are immediately present, dry, no sweetness can be perceived. Pears become clear, also some grass, a slight note of fruit that gains strength together with the grass. A little lime also comes up, the OBF goes again, the malt still remains dry. After standing for a long time, there is considerably more fruit and a little sweat. It is also not quite as dry anymore. I can make out a touch of garlic. Hand warmth finally brings sweetness to light with a strong note of caramel, the pears are now compote.
It is all the sweeter in the mouth. A mixture of honey and liquid caramel, with a touch of pear and liquorice, and not too short. The start comes with an immense time delay, if you soon no longer expect it, but quite voluminous. On the second day it's milk chocolate instead of caramel, classic pear Helene.
In the short to medium-length finish, it dries off immensely and becomes grassy, with this pear-like impression lasting until the end.
